Data Analytics on AWS: A Quick Walkthrough

Voiced by Amazon Polly


When it comes to finding actionable insights out of data to drive decision-making capabilities and accelerate understanding of the business better and hence serve customers in the best feasible way, data analytics is the domain that comes into the picture.

Data Analytics is a collective, integrated, and collaborative approach that enables organizations to leverage various tools and technologies to become data-driven.

Big Data Analytics

With digital transformation, customers interacting with no digital products are growing exponentially; hence, the amount of data organizations must deal with is also growing.

Performing analytics on such a huge amount of data while taking care of variety, velocity, veracity, and value refers to big data analytics.

While dealing with big data analytics, challenges can come along the way in terms of collection, storage, cataloging, governance, analytics, and visualization of such a huge amount of data.

Hence, a general flow or set of steps used to be employed that are arranged properly to enable big data analytics, which is called a big data pipeline. The set of steps, phases, or components of the pipeline are as follows:

  • Collection and Ingestion: Data sources must be identified, and appropriate ingestion techniques can be used to collect data.
  • Storage: Based on the nature of the data, data can be ingested and stored in appropriate repositories such as data lakes, databases, or data warehouses.
  • Cataloging and Governance: Data about data,e., metadata, is important, and its existence opens the door for ad-hoc exploration.
  • Processing: Raw data is not a good option to perform analytics on. It must be transformed, if needed, to be in a decent shape that drives better analytics.
  • Analytics and Visualization: Finally, the data is ready for analysis and creating visualization.
